Barro Petatillo

About …

The Lucano family is highly known in Tlaquepaque because of his quality and small details when it comes to working with Petatillo clay. The Petatillo consists in detailed drawings that the artists make with their own hands, which naturally tell a story. Once they are finished with the drawings, in the spaces between them they draw small, White lines that once the pieces are backed gives you the sensation that the piece is covered with “petate”. This technique is one of the most detailed ones and its about to disappear.
